Thou Hidden Source of Calm Repose

Representative Text

1 Thou hidden source of calm repose,
Thou all-sufficient love divine,
my help and refuge from my foes,
secure I am, if Thou art mine;
from sin and grief and shame I hide me,
Jesus, in Thy name.

2 Thy mighty name salvation is,
and keeps my happy soul above;
comfort it brings, and pow'r and peace,
and joy and everlasting love;
to me, with Thy dear name, are giv'n
pardon and holiness and heav'n.

3 Jesus, my all in all Thou art;
my rest in toil, my ease in pain,
the healing of my broken heart,
in war my peace, in loss my gain,
my smile beneath the tyrant's frown,
in shame my glory and my crown.

4 In want my plentiful supply,
in weakness my almighty pow'r,
in bonds my perfect liberty,
my light in Satan's darkest hour,
my help and stay whene'er call,
my life in death, my heav'n, my all.
